Good, then you DO have a citation to back up that preposterous claim?


Bush II received approximately one-half of the vote of the approximately
60% [1] of the eligible voters who voted. That is approximately 30% of

the
eligible voters choosing Bush II, or less than one-third.

40% did not choose either Kerry or Bush II, thereby indicating their
preference for "none of the above".

Your math is sound. Your conclusion, in my opinion, is not. You give

those
folks who didn't vote too much credit. I don't believe they were making

the
statement, "none of the above" at all. I believe they were making the
statement, "whatever you think is OK with me" or, "I don't care, pass the
(beer, drugs)" or "I'm just too plain lazy."

Now YOU are giving them too much credit.

"Election? What that this month?"
"Did Hilary win? I Hope not."

Cool! We can dispense with this messy and expensive voting thing and rely on
the polls. Why didn't I think of that?

Do you really think an exit poll is accurate? Especially four years ago in
FLORIDA when the all knowing and wise PRESS declared Florida had gone for Gore
before the polls closed in the panhandle?

We oughta pass a consititutional amendment banning polls.

Not voting does not mean a vote against Bush. I know that this is really
hard for the extremists to understand, but Bush wasn't only voted in on one
of the most important Presidential elections in half a century, but the
Republicans extended their leads in the Senate, the House, many state
legislatures and governorships. He will probably replace three or four
Supreme Court Justices which will hopefully end the idea that the Supreme
Court should be ruling this land rather than the elected officials as the
founders chose.

The Democratic Party has become so obviously a party of radical Liberal
extremists instead of the "Party of the people" it was when Kennedy cheated
his way into the Presidency that unless moderate Democrats take the party
back they are doomed to become less than one third of the Congress come the
next election cycle.

Here's a suggestion - if you maintain that people like Kerry, Edwards and
Dean should represent the whacko left this country will be getting in some
pretty serious trouble with a one party system in place of the two party
system envisioned by people more worthy of consideration than you.

Or maybe both the candidates with a chance of winning did nothing to
inspire people to vote.


I guess that's why this was the biggest turnout in election history.
